Borouge Plc reaffirmed its commitment to driving circularity and sustainability efforts in China, during its participation at CHINAPLAS 2023 in Shenzhen, with a showcase of the company’s diverse range of polyolefin solutions.


"This year, Borouge celebrates 25 years since its inception, and China remains key for growth opportunities in our international expansion plans," Rainer Hoefling, Chief Executive Officer, Borouge Pte Ltd, said. "The company continues to be committed to working closely with the value chain, investing in our innovation and technical capabilities, to deliver the best-in-class solutions while ensuring sustainable business operations.”


The company has accelerated its efforts in recent years towards developing solutions through innovation and strong collaboration, to drive sustainability and a circular economy.


Leveraging its strategic partnerships with recycling companies in China, Borouge has developed several successful closed-loop solutions using post-consumer recycled polyolefins in a joint effort with the value chain.

One of the latest initiatives is a new circular solution for heavy-duty shipping sacks (HDSS) developed by Borouge with local value chain partners. The new solution adds 30% PCR content from used polyethylene HDSS together with booster grades from Borouge’s Borstar and Anteo products to create a new HDSS application. This closed-loop solution enables multiple recycling cycles within the same application, resulting in a lower carbon footprint.


At CHINAPLAS 2023, Borouge shows its efforts in circular economy with its latest closed-loop solutions.

A further step that addresses its sustainability ambitions in Agriculture is a closed-loop solution developed through a long-standing collaboration with local value chain partners. Used mulch film is given a second life through mechanical recycling, with recycled polyolefins incorporated into new drip irrigation pipes for agriculture and farming purposes.


These were shown together with Borouge’s comprehensive range of circular economy solutions targeted towards design for recyclability (DfR) and solutions that incorporate post-consumer recycled polyolefins such as courier bags, shrink films, non-food bottles, and caps, boosted by premium Anteo and Borstar polyethylene and polypropylene grades.


Other advanced packaging solutions showcased included the newly launched RD211CF, a latest random polypropylene copolymer material that delivers improved productivity and cost savings for flexible packaging applications.


Furthermore, Borouge is committed to supporting the gas and water pipe markets in China with high-quality pre-compounded PE100 and PE80 products. It has recently launched Borstar HE3477-RT, a new innovative Type II bi-modal polyethylene of raised temperature resistance (PE-RT), designed for heating and industrial pipes.


These pipes are designed for durability, achieving more than 50 years of service at elevated temperatures, a material that can address the growing demand to replace conventional materials in district heating and industrial applications.


The company also presented its industry-leading cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) solutions that support clean energy and low-loss transmission and distribution in the energy sector, including the Borlink LS4201S which achieved pre-qualifications test certifications for industry safety and reliability standards.


Mobility solutions that incorporate post-consumer recycled content, providing lightweight and circularity benefits for the automotive market include Daplen ED0701SYC and Fibremod GD3565SYC, and healthcare solutions certified to international regulations were displayed alongside Borouge’s portfolio of products at the event.
